We maintain our commitment to our students’ success through:

  • 9:1 student/teacher ratio
  • In-class support helping students reach their academic goals
  • Curriculum focus on character development
  • 30+ Extended Day enrichment classes

Hands-On, Minds-On Learning

We focus on developing well-rounded children through a dynamic, hands-on curriculum that includes dedicated special areas to enrich the educational experience.
